How do you make an inverted copy of the hull? and smooth it out?

1. You can go to File > Import > SketchUp files.
2.First you get that mouse tool on the top left. Then make a box to represent the smoothing then right click , Soften Edges then you can select how much your bow wants to be smoothed.

How to copy hull:
take the arrov tool,select all the model by pressing on the modelsface,then right click select,select all connected.
then take the movetool,jus must look forvart to aship to move it correctly,now if you taked the move tool,slide it onto your model then push and hold left Ctrl and left clic mouse to drag the copy away from model along the axe.
If you are ok with that take arrovtool again step one,then leftmouse button and flipalong whatever axe is crossing the ship.lat say its blue,flip along blue axe!there you go,have to join the two sides only,this is done with movetool,by draging the just copied side against original side,then if thats ok,then intersect,and that should be all.
